I also got the KMart delayed email. A big ol' Shaq-Fu to that establishment.

Good thing I jumped on that Newegg bundle.

Kmart email for me as well. Still hoping it comes through for tomorrow since street date hasn't actually happened yet. I hate how pre-order this thing everywhere and I haven't secured one. Target totally F'ED me. Kmart is up in the air. I have walmart Mario Wii u coming in somehow today, but still no update on system. Everything a mess.

BaZz

People can say all they want but GameStop seems to be one the best places handling the Wii U preorder madness "so far", Just got the phone call confirming my system is ready for pickup tomorrow and now they're offering 30% extra for trade-ins toward the Wii U

Bestbuy.com show my order ready for pick-up, but no email yet. I did get a text that is ready for pick-up during store hours. I am not wasting a trip to even try and pick-up one day early.

Also, stop by TRU today and no WiiU games are out or will be sold for the sale.

Is it true the US is getting less than 1 million Wii U's? If true then why bother launching? Seems like they should have started producing hardware earlier.

That's what I had to do, it was a relatively painless affair though.

I had a gut feeling this was going to happen. Even though I got the confirmation email, I felt something was amiss since my order was still "processing." Like you, I fortunately grabbed myself a Newegg bundle. Still says it's "packaging," but I suppose that's to be expected given that it's the weekend.

Did anyone get a text message from gamestop about a 30%bonus trade in credit toward a WiiU.

I also received the aforementioned Kmart email.

And you know what, that works for me. I don't need it day one as long as I know my name is on one, and I'll likely be getting by year's end, if not month's end, even.

Saves me from having to wake up early tomorrow.

thinking about cancelling my newegg pre-order for nsmbu and getting that b1g1 40% off tomorrow instead (nsmbu + scribblenauts unlimited). i wish i would have jumped on the scribblenauts as part of that newegg deal, but i missed it. i think it will kind of even out though.

You mean at your ToysRUs they aren't selling any 49.99 and under Wii U games for the B1G1 40 percent off today?

I think the best bet for people that didn't pre-order it or pre-ordered and got delayed/cancelled like me is to go to Kmart in the morning. I just called and they said it will be first come, first serve for the consoles in the morning. I'll be waking up at 7:30 and driving over since they open at 8.

My Wii U shows that it is ready for in store pickup at my local Best Buy. Looks like I will get one after all.

They said they didn't have any pre-orders. Which is weird because I pre-ordered it from there and mine is delayed, but w/e. I worked there for two years, I know they will have a bunch to sell.

do you think there is any action I can take to get one of those consoles reserved because I preordered it at that specific store?

My best buy did the midnight 360 launch. They had a bunch at midnight and then another allocation for regular opening in the morning. You may be allocate one for the morning. I doubt you wouldn't get one if you preordered (although I never put anything past best buy anymore)

i hope toy r us isn't going to have their heads up their ass again. they've had "unintentional" misprints in their adds before. i'd be pissed if i went tomorrow and they said it's b2g1 40% off.
